"I never killed anyone who didn't need killing."
JW Hardin



This five-inch barreled, nickeled and engraved, pearl-handled .41 Colt “Thunderer” was taken from Hardin in May 1895 by Deputy Sheriff Will Ten Eyck for “unlawfully carrying a pistol” in the Gem Saloon in El Paso, Texas. It was never returned to him, and Ten Eyck later repaired the cracked grip.


Displayed with assorted John Wesley Hardin memorabilia—including playing cards that Hardin shot and signed, original photos, a business card, gambling paraphernalia and a pocket watch presented to him by his cousin by marriage, “Killin’” Jim Miller—are two of Hardin’s personal weapons—(top) his five-inch, engraved and pearl-gripped .41 Colt “Thunderer,” taken in an arrest, and the 2 ½-inch, pearl-stocked, ejectorless .38 Colt “Lightning” Miller gave Hardin. Both were sold at auction in 1996.

his image by R.J. Onderdonk appeared in Hardin’s autobiography and depicts the gunfighter’s charge






Although Hardin was an expert pistoleer who used handguns for close range work, he knew the value of a scattergun. This 12-gauge, percussion W.&C. Scott & Son English shotgun was owned and used by Hardin to kill Jack Helm, the sheriff of DeWitt County, Texas, and a deadly rival in the Sutton-Taylor feud, in July 1873. Hardin later gave the piece to Sheriff J.C. Jones of Gonzales County, Texas.

This illustration, by noted artist R.J. Onderdonk, was created for John Wesley Hardin’s autobiography. It shows Hardin and his accomplice, Jim Taylor, gunning down Sheriff Jack Helm. Hardin used a 12-gauge caplock shotgun to broadside Helm; then Taylor fired several shots into Helms’s head with his six-gun.



Phil Spangenberger believes that Hardin used his .41 caliber Double Action 1877 Colts to shoot holes through faro cards during shooting exhibitions.
– Replication of playing card



This well-used 1851 Navy Colt and accompanying cut-down military holster came with a handwritten letter from Hardin’s cousin Joe Clements. Joe wrote to his daughter, Amanda, that Hardin gave him the .36 caliber six-gun after Joe had broken up a fight in Gonzales, Texas.

This mirror was hanging in El Paso’s Acme Saloon the night of August 19, 1895, when Constable John Selman killed John Wesley Hardin. Hardin was reportedly facing the mirror, rolling dice for drinks. His last words were “You have four sixes to beat.” The bullet that went through Hardin’s head supposedly bounced off of this mirror and was recovered.

A deadly duo of six-guns! At top is the Smith & Wesson .44-40 Frontier Double Action revolver taken from Hardin’s body (next slide) after he was shot by Constable John Selman (inset). Selman used the 1873 Colt Single Action .45 (above) to end the life of one of the West’s most notorious and dangerous shootists.

Je confirme Berny ! Twisted Evil



GUEST: I have a... I think it's a pretty rare photo of John Wesley Hardin. And he was an outlaw in Texas, a very infamous outlaw. When I first saw it, I just thought it was a nice cowboy photo. And then the owner of the store told me that it looked like John Wesley Hardin.

APPRAISER: And then did you do some research to find out if it was definitely Hardin?

GUEST: Yeah, that night I went home and I started reading every book I could find. And, uh, it sure added up to John Wesley Hardin.

APPRAISER: What we have here is a western photograph of an outlaw gang at a saloon. But you're right, when you look at it very close up, it does appear to be Hardin, and comparing an image that you found, this cabinet photograph is a very famous photograph. And if you look at his face and you actually look at the face of Hardin, it's identical. He was a very famous outlaw. The interesting thing about it is there are not a lot of photographs around of him. There's only about three or four known photographs. If it was a photograph of just a western saloon, it would probably be worth around $500. But because of the fact that it does appear to be Hardin, and since John is so rare, I would imagine that the estimate on this piece would be between $30,000 and $50,000.

GUEST: Wow. Awesome.

APPRAISER: It's an excellent, excellent, really rare piece of western Americana.

GUEST: Wow, that's good news.

APPRAISER: Yeah, thanks for bringing it in.

GUEST: No problem. Thank you.

Sympa cette modification ancienne de Holster cavalry!
Mais pour un gaucher, si toute fois J.W. Harding l'était, mal pratique vu l'angle du passant d'origine! Ou alors en cross draw main gauche?

J'ai un doute sur la 1ere photo du post,il me semble que Hardin était plus trappu dans ses dernieres années,ainsi que sur la forme des moustaches.
